Off campus access

When using a campus computer or UF Wireless, you're connected to the UF network.  But for off-campus access to library-licensed e-Journals, research databases and e-resources, use either:

UF VPN or the library proxy server (on the remote logon page)

When you see Find@UF in your search results, click for access to digital full-text material.



Turn your tablet into a virtual bookshelf for journals!

    Our top pick for a few good articles on any subject. Good for basic journals and multidisciplinary topics. For in-depth research, also search engineering-specific databases above.

Technical Reports

  • arXiv
    is a fully automated electronic archive and distribution server for research papers. It covers areas such as physics and related disciplines, mathematics, nonlinear sciences, and computer science.
  • E-print Network: Research Communications for Scientists and Engineers
    gateway to over 26,000 Web sites and databases worldwide, containing 1.2 million e-prints primarily in physics but also chemistry, biology and life sciences, materials science, nuclear sciences and engineering, energy research, computing and IT.

Looking for one article?

Journal article citations usually look similar to this:

Authorname, A.B. (2008). "Title of article." Journal Name. Vol 25, issue 3, pages 47-58.

Search the Library Catalog for the Journal Name to see if UF subscribes to the journal.
You may see 2 records in the Catalog for your Journal Name.

* One record has a link to the online version of the journal, and tells you which years we have online.

* Another record tells you the library, call number (shelf location), and inventory (volumes and issues) that we have in print.
